Synopsis

Amazon.com
Rap metal has been around ever since 1986 when Run-DMC and Aerosmith joined forces for a remake of "Walk This Way," but it took nearly a decade for Rage Against the Machine to bust the floodgates wide open. Soon after, a stream of percussive hellraisers including Korn, Downset, and Deftones infiltrated the metal market, and they, in turn, sired a new breed fronted by acts like Snot and Limp Bizkit. Three Dollar Bill Y'All, Limp Bizkit's debut album, is a tempestuous collection of divergent styles. Unlike metal acts that try to get "dope," but lack the hip-hop background to legitimately fuse the two genres, Limp Bizkit--which features Wes Borland and House of Pain member DJ Lethal--have the know-how to groove and grind. And instead of launching a one-dimensional Blitzkrieg, Limp Bizkit mixes up its rhythms and tempos to keep its listeners guessing. --Jon Wiederhorn

A couple of good tunes, but too whiney for my taste. I guess alot of people like 'em though.

This album is old-school Limp Bizkit, without a doubt...
...It's interesting to listen to their new music, in comparison to this album (still loved, but nearly a decade aged), and see how they've changed in musical styles.

Start to finish, Bizkit blend of riffs and raps are perfect

"From the intro where Fred preaches buying a gun to kill "the pollution of satan" to the seemingly endless but well done none-the-less "Everything", Three Dollar Bill is definately for real, is anything but limp, and will not leave you wanting change. While the album has it's moments of nothing but mindless screaming, Fred Durst's redeeming lyrics are incredibly real, moving, and in many cases just f***ing brilliant. Presented in the form of hip-hop with metal backing, the engaging songs will get anyone who really appreciates either metal or rap moshing and bustin out the phat lyrics sung (or yelled) only as Fred can (a white guy rapping, go figure). The band did an incredible job of mixing both hard rocking from start to stop beats, such as Pollution, Nobody Loves Me, Clunk, and Leech, with slowly inticing, soon to rip you with killer riffs, like Counterfiet, Stuck, Sour, Faith, and Indigo Flow. The slow paced to absolute mosh can be reminiscent of the old Metallica. Although it has the slow paced openers, the album as a whole, rocks hard, fast and furious, relentlessly pounding on on your ears and all the senses. At the end of the album, you say to yourself, "What the hell just happened?" You got hit with something limp, a premeir band from Jacksonville who has a long career ahead of them. You got hit with a Three Dollar Bill..."
This album is under-rated

"Three Dollar Bill, Y'all puts Significant Other to shame. I don't understand why the latter was endorsed so much. There are few albums I can listen to continuously, and Three Dollar Bill, Y'all is one of them. It is more representative of Limp Bizkit's raw sound and talent; plus it's a lot more intimate and less commercial. Why it's remained so obscure is beyond me."
